The 15th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 8-13 July, 1962 in San Francisco, USA:
The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom recognizing the urgency of mobilizing the intellectual as well as the moral and psychological forces of mankind on the making of peace, advocates international cooperation in Peace Research, preferably under the auspices of the United Nations.
It is important that the various institutes and organizations now working in this field in different countries should be in contact and keep informed about each others activities and findings.
The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom at its Fifteenth Triennial Congress, meeting in San Francisco (Asilomar, California), July 8-13, 1962, urges UNESCO as soon as possible to call an international conference of scholars working in this field that scientists engaged in peace research may not only exchange ideas but also develop a new vision of their contribution to the building of world order.
